With both Jarrod and Gavin on duty for the reserves we took a somewhat depleted squad up to Western Springs. Peter Davies accompanied us and we played on the best Auckland surface we had encountered so far. This game, unfortunately, was a story of missed opportunities.
Whilst Western Springs played one-touch around our area and converted most of their chances (including two free-kicks), the 'Blues' missed a hatful, including four 'one-v-ones'. The result flattered our hosts but we must start putting the ball in the net, we created more chances in this game than in the previous two but composure in front of the sticks cost us dearly.
